Sing You Home ~ It IS Time
Greetings Dear Reader,
Since we are nearing the end of this part of the journey and must turn our attention to some basic matters there is the feeling that time grows short. As a race we are masters of delaying embracing the truth. We find so many reasons to avoid what we should in an attempt to pursue what we wish. We follow the wrong gods home and are surprised to find the home is false and disappointing.
It is time to head for HOME. There is no more time to tarry over things that are a semblance or empty replacement. There is no room for unnecessary and cumbersome things in our packs. We may stay are rest a bit here and there but there is no permanent place here that will sustain us.
The journey continues whether we accept it or not. The sun rolls through our days whether it is bright and clear or shrouded in grey and cold. The sands drift through the pinch and we choose what we will do with each grain. The world is not going to get better. The shadow will grow before it diminishes. The gathering darkness has not reached it fullness.
We must be on the path before the darkness hinders us. The Father is unwilling that any should perish. The Son draws us to himself and bids us follow him HOME. The world may no long remember this simple scribbler. I do, however, hope that my tales and verse can somehow sing you closer to HOME Dear Reader.
If we are honest, there is nothing we lose in following that we can hope to keep anyway. It is all destined to ruin if it is not part of following Christ. We look at men and use them to deny God. We build homes and think we are in a lasting place. We need to heed the call, hear the song, and understand what Christ is saying. He is calling for you to get back HOME.
The quiet hours you walked alone
He was beside you
The painful tears; the darkened years
He was around then too
And all your life, you’ve been on your own
Now He’s calling for you to get back home.
The many things you’ve tried to do to fill the emptiness
The painful tears, the broken years just left you lonliness, yes it did
But in your heart now you know its time to go
As he’s calling for you to get back home
And the voices of your past will cry out to you
Just turn you back on them and come through, yeah
The many loves you’ve gained and lost
Your deepest hurts
The many times you turned your back on God
Who loved you first
Now the love of God will fall on you
And he’ll show you the way to get back home…
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
